Osprey Wilds is an environmental learning center in Sandstone, Minnesota. Our mission is to instill a connection and commitment to the environment in people of all communities through experiential learning. Our Women’s Wellness Weekend is the perfect time to reconnect with nature alongside a friendly and welcoming community. 

This retreat is hosted twice a year (spring and fall) and is an opportunity for anyone who identifies as a woman to spend time in nature, meet new people, and learn new skills. The weekend is full of possibilities, and we encourage you to join us! 

This weekend focuses on adventure, relaxation and renewal; you can choose from a wide variety of mind, body and spirit activities for healing and personal growth, including private massages, reiki/energy healing, chakra and intuitive sessions. Enjoy the peace and calm of our campus, and immerse yourself in nature.





Keynote Speaker

Nina Roberts Salveson

Speaking in the evening on Friday, October 1 in Crosby Lodge

DscM, MA, MCPC, Energetics and Reiki Master, Neuro-Transformational and Hypnotherapeutic Coach and Facilitator

A visionary empath, intuitive wayshower and transformational coach and guide, Nina was born with the ability to understand energy; human energy, animal energy, the energy fields in nature, and the fields of connectedness and consciousness. She says she was “born and prepared all her life for this particular juncture in human existence” — a time of great shift, expansion and transition into a new human era and the Aquarian Age of the Feminine.

A dedicated private and group coach and facilitator for three decades, Nina has trained and studied with pioneers and masters in the fields of neuroscience, positive psychology, hypnotherapy and NLP, spirit-mind-body, life purpose discovery, quantum healing, human potential, and indigenous/Earth Spirituality. Distilled from her life work, somatic movement study, outdoor adventure travel and backpacking treks and study with wise yogis and Indian and Tibetan masters, Nina translates ancient wisdom into the modern-day and creates a bridge with the warp-speed shifts occurring in humanity, society, and the planet at this time of great change.


A finalized schedule will be sent out prior to this event.

Registration will look slightly different this year than it has in the past. Osprey Wilds has recently transitioned to a new registration platform. All registration will be online. Please read the instructions below to register. 

Are you planning to room with a friend or a group? 

If you are planning to room with one or multiple other attendees, we ask that you register together. This will ensure that you and your preferred roommates are assigned to the same rooms. One person will need to submit a registration form for all roommates and will need to include their own information (as attendee 1), as well as each roommate’s first name, last name, email address, and any dietary restrictions or food allergies. Please DO NOT use one person’s email address for multiple attendees, as some of their information could be lost. 

Single-person registration

We encourage all folks to join us for this weekend! If you are registering as a single person (not with a group or specified roommate) we will place you with a roommate! Single-occupancy rooms are not available due to the number of attendees. Sharing a room is a great way to get to know fellow participants. Please select your preferred room arrangement when registering. For example, if you are registering one person (yourself), and want to share a room with one other person in Crosby Lodge, you would select the Double Occupancy – Crosby option when registering. If you prefer more than one roommate, you can select the Triple Occupancy or Quad Occupancy options; depending on the number of single registrants, you could end up having fewer roommates than anticipated, but you will never have more than you have selected.
